Is it wrong to verbally acknowledge my white privilege and point out the racial disparities that exist in the US? example, I'm crossing the street midblock without a crosswalk. My sons says, we shouldn't do this, it's jaywalking. My reply - you're right, but there's a good chance that we won't be ticketted for it because we're white. Isn't that awful?

Or... just purchased a car, it doesn't have plates, I don't feel like it's a big deal to drive it home because I'm white. If I were black, it'd be a problem.

FWIW, I'm not doing this from a point of power, but of disgust and outrage.

And I want to point it out, specifically to my sons and generate conversation.
